Introducing Camouflage for Kids (Part 1)

What is camouflage?

According to a National Geographic article, camouflage is a defense mechanism or tactic that organisms use to disguise their appearance to mask their location, identity, and movement. How can I teach my son about this? I searched from Pinterest and randomly found a great website called “Frugal fun for BOYS AND GIRLS.” This website introduces and shares so many fun and also educational activities. They have a great idea about learning camouflage, and we tried it!
